Omega has long supported the excellent sailing players of the New Zealand Chiefs. To celebrate the close cooperation between Omega and the prestigious sailing team, Omega Glory released the new seahorse series ‘New Zealand Chiefs’ 300-meter diving watch.
The black unidirectional rotating ceramic bezel of the Omega’s new hippocampus ‘New Zealand Chiefs’ 300m diving watch is marked with a polished diving scale, and the significant value is etched by laser. The dots at 12 o’clock on the diving bezel are covered with a white Super-LumiNova luminous coating, emitting green light in the dark.
The sandblasted grade 5 titanium dial is coated with a white Super-LumiNova luminous coating, which emits blue light. The silver seconds chronograph scale is located on the outer edge of the dial, and the inner ring is a minute scale with matte titanium. There are three chronograph dials on the dial. The small seconds dial is at 9 o’clock, the 12-hour chronograph dial is at 6 o’clock, and the 30-minute chronograph dial is at 3 o’clock. At the same time, there is also a 5 minute countdown scale for the regatta. The 44mm grade 5 titanium case is matte and has buttons at 2 o’clock and 4 o’clock, highlighted by red aluminum rings and black matte ceramic rings, respectively. To be precise, all components related to the timing function are in red. The watch is also equipped with a helium exhaust valve at 10 o’clock, and also has a date adjustment function.
The new Hippocampus New Zealand Chiefs 300m diving watch is equipped with a black rubber strap with folding buckle. The front of the strap is black with fine ribbing and the back of the strap is red, echoing the sail colors of the New Zealand Chiefs. This design ensures the smooth flow of water and air between the strap and the skin, keeping the skin comfortable.
The embossed engraving on the screw-down frosted case back features the New Zealand Chiefs team logo. The unique pattern makes this watch closely linked to the world of sailing, demonstrating Omega’s support for the world-renowned sailing team. The watch is equipped with a 3330 self-winding coaxial movement with Si14 silicon balance spring and longitudinal chronograph technology.
New Zealand Chiefs vs. Omega
Omega is very proud of the cooperation with the New Zealand Chiefs. As early as 1995 when Sir Peter Blake led the New Zealand Chiefs to the Americas Cup, the two sides began cooperation. The New Zealand Chiefs easily won the game that year and won again in 2000. Sir Peter ended his professional sailing career after this competition, but Omega has been one of the main sponsors and continued to support his Blakespeditions project until his untimely death in 2001. Since then, Omega has continued to support the New Zealand Chiefs and look forward to cheering them in the 2017 America’s Cup and America’s Cup Challenges.
